Project Studies and Interdisciplinary Projects (IDPs)
The TIM group periodically offers Interdisciplinary Projects (IDPs) for IT students. The lecture part is usually covered through the attendance of "Advanced Technology and Innovation Management" and a subsequent oral exam. For further questions and applications please contact Katharina Tanimura.
- Market Analysis and Product Conceptualization for a "Drag Power" Kite (November 2017)
- Strategiefindung für ein StartUp aus dem Machine-Learning- und Big- Data-Umfeld (October 2017)
- Machine-augmented analysis of emergent technologies and innovations (July 2017)
If you plan to conduct your project studies in cooperation with us, we offer you the following options to choose from:
- We regularly offer new project studies. Usually, we post these on this website. The posting will name a contact person that you can address in case you are interested in the topic.
- Alternatively, you can contact us with an idea for a project study of your own if you think it fits with the areas of research and teaching of our chair. Please contact one of the team members via e-mail and include a short draft of your idea (synopsis of the project including partner company, contact person in the company if available, etc.).
